In July we helped...

Francisca Amada from Ecuador to stock her store, and expand and improve her business.

Francisca Amada is 70 years old. She is a widow and has five grown children. They live in Manta, a very enchanting city due to its beautiful beaches and international fishing port.

Francisca is a woman who 30 years ago set up a small store in her house selling a variety of products of mass consumption. Her primary customers are residents of the area.

She tends to her customers in a pleasant manner, offering a variety of products, such as rice, sugar, drinks, and coffee, among others, in order to satisfy their needs. With this loan Francisca's goal is to stock her store, and expand and improve her business.
